    Acquisition Information

    Materials in this archive were donated to the C.G. Jung Institute at an unknown date, and were in storage until they were cataloged by archival intern Kelley Shields between 2007 and 2008. Materials were re-housed and organized into three main series: Manuscripts and Translations, Testing Materials, and Clinical Work. In March 2008, Kelley created a finding aid and described the materials at the item level. In 2016, Heather Nelson re-organized the materials into 4 series (Manuscripts & Translations, Testing Materials & Clinical Work, Research Files, and Correspondence) and created a streamlined finding aid. In April of 2016, a few items were added through a donation from the Analytical Psychology Club of San Francisco; they are noted accordingly in the finding aid.

    Biography/Administrative History

    Horace Gray, M.D. (1887-1965) was a professor, Jungian scholar, and medical doctor who lived and worked primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area and Santa Barbara. Gray was born on October 11, 1887 in Boston, Massachusetts to parents Amelia Amy Heard and Russell Gray. He married Katharine Meeker in 1915 and they had one child together, named Horace Gray, in 1916. Gray graduated from Stanford University Medical School and later returned as an Associate Clinical Professor in the Department of Medicine in the early 1930s. During this time he also became acquainted with Joseph Wheelwright who was then working at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute at UCSF. In 1941, Gray, Jo Wheelwright and Jo’s wife, Jane, began a collaboration that lead to the publication of the Gray-Wheelwrights Jungian Type Survey in 1944. Between 1944 and 1949, Gray and Joseph Wheelwright published around eleven articles relating to their Survey work. Gray became one of the earliest members of the Society of Jungian Analysts of Northern California, joining in 1942. In the years between 1945-1950, it appears that Gray met with Jung for analysis and began translating some of Jung’s work. He retired from his faculty position at Stanford in 1950, and passed away on February 24, 1965 in Santa Barbara, California.
